of Scams by Type and by profession.
Rating: One of many that I have recieved from guides and outfitters. It is also sent to Bed and Breakfasts. The scam works like this.. they make reservations paying you in full ahead of time. ONLY they send too much money or tell you they are sending extra for you to send to their travel agent or other person. Certified Checks have been used in the past. The checks are good enough that some banks will actually cash them. Other scams use credit cards that have been stolen or have been hijacked from the mail. They charge them up but since you did not see the ACTUAL CARD the money is taken back from you. You have sent the EXTRA money on and the criminal now has it. NEVER take more than the amount of the trip from any one EVER. 99.9 times out of 99.999999999 times this is a scam.. matter of fact I have never EVER heard of one being legit.

| This is a
rather poorly written and obvious scam letter. One clue was that I
got the same letter from several guides the same day, and I also
received it. Beyond that is the poor English grammar and spelling
from an ENGLISHMAN.. and the name? Harry J. Harry?
